Dublin court agrees extradition of man in connection with Grays lorry deaths

A man has appeared in court today, Friday January 24, in connection with the deaths of 39 people found in a lorry in Grays last year.

Eamonn Harrison, 22, of Mayobridge, Northern Ireland, appeared at Dublin’s High Court where it was agreed that he would be extradited to the UK under the terms of an European Arrest Warrant (EAW).

He faces 39 charges of manslaughter, conspiracy to traffic people and conspiracy to assist unlawful immigration and he has been remanded to appear at Dublin’s High Court on Tuesday February 4.

This hearing will agree the terms of Harrison’s extradition, which followed successful applications made by Essex Police and the Crown Prosecution Service.
